Tips for Getting the Most from Convergence

Email | Print

Get the most out of Microsoft Convergence this year by planning ahead on how to maximize your conference experience.  For the past 10 years The Resource Group has hosted hundreds of customers at Convergence and has learned a thing or two.  Owner Marty Schillaci shared his wisdom on the Microsoft Dynamics Community where he posted his top 10 tips for getting the most out of Convergence – 5 tips for before you leave and 5 tips for while you are there.  Here are my favorite 2:

Before you leave

Meet internally beforehand- Convergence 2011 is all about bringing back solutions to your company that deliver real business value. To do that, I suggest you have an internal meeting before you go to find out what others in your organization see as business challenges and opportunities. Get their wish list. This will broaden your awareness of what to look for at Convergence, and allow you to expand the value of Convergence across the organization. You might also make someone else in your organization very happy.

While you are there

Experience the Expo - the Expo houses hundreds of solution providers who provide add-on functionality for the family of Dynamics solutions. Tip 1 - make sure you allocate a lot of time for the Expo. Tip 2 - ask your Microsoft partner to attend with you. It can be overwhelming for a first-time attendee, and even for us veterans it can be intimidating. Your partner can direct you to specific vendors and products that will fit your business needs the best. After that walk-through, you can feel more relaxed to just wander. And bring a bag for all of the swag.
